once upon a time



I glanced away, and
You were gone,
 As if an early mist had
Been burned away
By morning sunlight

Though, knowing within my soul
 You had roiled away
Into Gods all forgiving embrace.
I wandered, and watched
 Until night drew in
Then I chanced upon the stars.
You my darling girl

Had reappeared laughing
Mischievously among the cumulus.
I glance away,and look back.

You are still there,
On diamond nights
You can always be seen
Dancing, laughing, and
Playing, among the starlight
